“That’s extremely inappropriate and I felt embarrassed and ashamed and violated,” she said.
That was back in June. She hasn’t been back since. When she contacted LA Fitness corporate offices and complained, they offered her $400. Johnson was paying $200 a month and she had signed a two year contract.
Her next move was to contact Chase Laws, an attorney.
“This was probably just an effort to move this along like perhaps any other claim that may come through their door,” Laws said.
He filed a suit saying Jamie Johnson had suffered traumatic emotional distress and couldn’t function through her daily activities. And, because of that, her husband suffered too.
Johnson said she tried going back to a gym regularly but hasn’t been able to.
She says she wants proper compensation, though her attorney said they wouldn’t discuss what that would be.
She also wants to send a message.
“I would like to have these guys realize they can’t treat women this way,” she said.
Her attorney said he tried contacting LA Fitness before filing the suit. First, he sent a demand letter. Then, he hand delivered a draft petition to L-A Fitness in Plano. He never heard back from them.
CBS 11 called LA Fitness corporate headquarters too but have not heard back from them yet either.
